Weave Summer & Winter on Eight Shafts with Mary Bentley, September 5-7, 2014. Check out the poster and additional information. Jean Curry writes; "Many of our members remember Mary Bentley, the master of Summer and Winter.  She has semi-retired from teaching, but has agreed to teach here on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of BC. Jean took her 8 shaft Summer and Winter this September and said that it was wonderful.  She is such a knowledgeable and sharing teacher.  It is so worth the trip.  We can find recommendations for places to stay that are affordable. Consider a retreat with a couple of friends!!!"
